For many people in our community, experiences at the Clerc Center are their first examples of love, support, safety, and inclusion as LGBTQIA individual. That sense of belonging and being part of a family is what we all strive for along our journey of finding our true selves. We enjoyed "hanging out" with our teachers and staff, Blake Culley, Meg George, Raquel Grindstaff, Nuke Hayes, Leslye Kang, Toni Killam nd Dr. Joseph Santini and truly appreciated their sharing LGBTQIA journey.
